“Using a small amount of CPU” is one of the most important features a program can have.
You may have noticed that when the FoxTorrent WebUI is open, Firefox goes to town on your CPU every few seconds; it happened when a lot of files ( i.e. > 50 ) were in the downloading list.
This had to change.

With much major refactoring of how the FoxTorrent WebUI communicates with the Red Swoosh client, we got the ongoing CPU use down from maxing out the CPU every few seconds to, well, take a look:

(This is on a 1Ghz processor with 70 files in the download list.)

We still have that initial hit when opening the WebUI with torrents that include a large file set, but that’s a job for another day.
